UDI Capital Region would like to reassure our members that we are still open for business during these unprecedented and challenging circumstances.

Jordan Milne, the chair of UDI Capital Region’s board of directors, has shared this letter to his fellow members.

All UDI committee meetings and other small gatherings will be transitioned to conference calls – other policy and advocacy work will continue to the best of our ability considering the situation that we are dealing with.

We will will do our best to keep the development industry apprised of how the municipalities are moving forward with the development permitting/application processes.  All the most recent updates can be found on this page, and updates will be sent out by email as they arise.

Kathy and Emily will mainly be working remotely. If you need assistance, we can be reached by email or phone:
Kathy Whitcher: kathyw@udi.org or 250-888-1671
Emily Donner: emilyd@udi.org
